This summary, of course, is very brief, but I think it captures basically what the technique is about. Throughout the book, Kennedy relates actual case histories of people who suffered from various heart ailments such as congestive heart failure, heart attacks, arrhythmias, valve disease and other types of heart disease. After describing each scenario, he goes through the seven step relaxation process and applies it to each particular situation. This is repeated throughout the book. The bulk of the book consists of the stories of people who have suffered cardiac events and their outcomes. I did find these stories very enlightening though. It makes one more cognizant of one's own health and to not take such for granted. Health is something that must be maintained.
I feel that relaxation procedures such as these are very good to practice on a regular basis; however, my issue is with the "curative" potential given this procedure. Many of the people discussed in the book also had life saving treatment in hospitals, and were given drugs to control or improve their condition. So there were other interventions employed as well. I think any type of breathing or relaxation sessions serve as an important adjunct in healing someone, but I would not go so far as to call it a cure.
